MnDOT seeks public input on proposed intersection improvements to Hwy 14/Highland Avenue in New Ulm

MANKATO, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is seeking community feedback on design concepts for the intersection of Hwy 14 and Highland Avenue in New Ulm. The public is invited to participate in the virtual open house by watching a video presentation of five design concepts and completing a survey by August 21. Both the video and survey can be found on the project website at mndot.gov/d7/projects/hwy14-highlandavestudy-newulm/public-input.

MnDOT is currently conducting a traffic study of the intersection to identify opportunities to improve safety and mobility. With input from the city of New Ulm, local residents and businesses, the school district, and other project stakeholders, MnDOT has evaluated the intersection, developed design concepts, and will arrive at a preferred layout in an effort to secure funding for a future safety improvement project.
